Accessorizing the Home Window Treatments and Shutters

When it comes to making a home beautiful, your windows play a major role. The biggest mistake you can make is to leave your windows looking drab and boring and expect your home to have the wow effect. Windows speak volumes both for the interior and exterior of your home. You can have the window panes themselves play a role such as installing tech windows, or go for treatments. Here is how you can use shutters and other window treatments to get the perfect look for your home.

Shutters

Shutters are not a recent invention. They have been around for quite a while and have evolved over the years both in style and functionality. UK window shutters increase your home’s curb appeal and give it a great look on the interior as well. You can use shutters to increase privacy, protect your home from the weather elements such as wind and sunshine and you can also use shutters purely for their aesthetic value. 

Types of Shutters

Shutters can be classified into two main categories i.e. interior and exterior shutters. These are further divided into several other types such as louvered shutters, board & batten, raised panel and plantation shutters. Board and batten shutters work quite well for windows that curve. They give such windows a solid look that is appealing both on the inside and outside. Louvered shutters are a favourite for many people. They are often characterised by wooden slats which give the home a neat and stylish finish.

How to Pick Shutters

Choosing the correct shutters for your home can determine the overall effect once the installation is finished. The wrong shutter choice can completely destroy the look you were going for and make your home look awkward. Always consider the size of the windows for which you need the shutters. Very small windows cannot accommodate shutters so only put them where they fit. Again if your windows are too close to corners for instance then the shutters will stick out like a sore thumb. The style and colour you choose must go with your overall look too so always consult a shutter specialist if you are not sure about what to go with.

Other Window Treatments

Windows can be treated in several other ways. Here are a few options for next time you are redecorating.

Curtains

This might seem obvious but not everyone knows what’s good when it comes to curtains. They are not just pieces of cloth that you throw onto your windows to block out the sunlight. Colour, texture, fabric, design, fit and many other factors must be considered when choosing curtains for your windows. There is a myriad of designs to choose from and what you pick should auger well with your interior decor. Curtains can act as insulators so consider the type of climate in your area.

Heavy curtains are best for very cold areas because they help retain most of the heat from the sun. Colourful and bold colours for your curtains can liven up the room and give it a warm feel. If you are not into colourful decor, you can go neutral with black, white and grey. Paired with the right furniture these can work miracles in any room. 

Lining 

Always try to line your curtains although this will cost extra. Lining refers to the sheer material that is put between the window and curtain. The lining will protect your curtains from fade caused by the sun. They also filter light as it comes through the windows making it less intense and colourful.

Organic Window Treatments Options

You do not always have to go with curtains. There are other novel ideas that can work for you. Organic shades are one such example. These are often woven using either bamboo or reed. There are several other types of materials that can be used to make them. They give your windows a natural, outdoorsy feel yet still serve the same purpose that curtains would.

Silk panelling

If you are going for a sleek, modern and very luxurious look then these are your best bet. Their radiance is unrivalled and they are guaranteed to perk up even the dullest of rooms. You can have embroidered ones, plaid or even jacquard panels depending on your preference and style.

The list of window treatment options is endless. There are tech-based options that will allow you to control your curtains or blinds remotely. Some treatments are designed to be stain resistant and this keeps your home pleasantly clean all year round. Anti bacterial and anti fungal properties can also be woven into the fabric you choose for your windows keeping your home healthy. The options abound; pick the ones that work for you without destroying your budget.
